MR. CHURCHILL'S TOUR. HIS TIME IN MALTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 8 January 1908
MB CHUKCHXXX'S TOTTK. HIS TIME IN MALTA. Mr Churchill must have had a great time In Malta. This Is how a local paper, 'Giahan,' begins 'Our Welcome' to the visitor:— 'Giahan from the profond of his heart give the welcome to the under secretary of the Colonies, Mister Churchill. Gtve him his best whishes, merry Christmas, and a happy new year.' Perhaps (here Is here a certain con fusion as to the season, but the excel lence of the sentiment Is beyond dis pute. In order that Mister Churchill and himself may stand upon a common foot ing ot bnowledee of veach\ other, ^.QJa-. ban' makes -alif clear jn these 'terms :~*: 'Perhaps Mr Churchill not! know J/ftio is It Mister Giahan. But Mister Giahan knows who is Mr Churchill, that Is he know him only by the name. Be knows all his adventures in South Africa— that he Is literate, nearly as much as Giahan, 'For information of Mr Churchill we begin to tell him that Mr Giahan Is the father of his sons— 17 In all— and If few Mr Churchill will excu...
ETIOUETTE. ITS INS AND OUTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 8 January 1908
ETIQUETTE. ITS INS AND OUTS. ' I have been reading (writes Mr Spencer Leigh Hughes in 'M.A.P,') a little volume entitled ' The New ,Book of Etiquette,' and that title itself suggests' that those conven tional rules or forms of ceremony or decorum required by good breeding to be observed towards particular persons and in particular places, do not constitute an exact science. There is no finality in etiquette,' and that which is the correct thing to day may be a shocking lapse to-mor- , row. Thus even those who master ' all the intricacies in these hand books of manners can never feel secure— Just as the lady who rejoices In securing the latest thing In. hats has but a short time in which to revel in a sense of possession. For even as she pins it in position, she is haunted by the consciousness that fashions are fleeting and that at that very moment there may be symptoms ot a change singing in the upper chambers of the air. So with the ' Btudent of etiquette — no sooner has bo learnt ...
